Leeds United vs Nottingham Forest


Leeds United welcome back defender Pontus Jansson after he served a two-match ban for 10 bookings.

Garry Monk’s side, who lost 3-2 at Barnsley on Saturday, will go back up to third with a win.

Nottingham Forest are without defender Matt Mills, who sustained a groin injury in their win over Bristol City.

Joe Worrall is in contention to replace Mills, who was named captain by caretaker boss Gary Brazil after the sale of Henri Lansbury to Aston Villa.
